    To elaborate: I love that he is putting his foot down and saying FU to this prima donna. Carmelo is really between a rock and a hard place now.

    Maybe he just read this article at BleacherReport that King Phoenix mentioned here and decided that he'd rather pay less for Iggy and some other pieces than Melo and nothing else.

    I love it. Basically a big FU to Denver for being on the fence. At the same time, I don't think Carmelo has changed his stance. He wants to be a free agent and go through the process. The Nuggets are the ones losing in this whole scenario.

    cdash taking the words right out of my mouth.

    This sucks for us. I'd much rather Melo end up in Jersey than with the Knicks.

    I don't think he is saying Fu to Melo, I think he is saying it to the Nuggets, bad news for the Pacers if NY gets him.

    IF Melo goes to the knicks now.. the pacers have to get 2 above average players to even compete with the knicks among other top East teams... we're just an Iguodala and great PF player away from being a top 3 team in the east in a cpl years..

    Prokhorov finally comes to his senses.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    We don't need Devin Harris or a PG.

    I think it's actually not too bad for us.

    We may not be in a battle with the Knicks to climb higher in the standings, but the Hawks who will probably fall to the 6th spot and the Knicks might even climb higher than the 5th. That is if they do get Carmelo.

    We need to pull a few decent trades or use our money and sign a really good player specifically a PF to give us a comfortable spot in the standings.

    Dude, yeah I know.. DC is my favorite player. Devin is a guy to make salaries match and some bench scoring and Favors is a stud.

    You know this idea is sounding better & better. I love DG, but what if this deal were on the table for real? Who else pulls the the trigger?

    We need a new coach before we think about trading Danny or any of our core players.

    We definitely will have a lot of options in this offseason between a potential new coach and what we're going to do with the money we have from the expired contracts.

    but would you be willing to trade danny for favors AND their 1st round pick this year?

    something like vujacic, favors, 2011 1st for danny? personally, i think it'd be a good deal for both sides.

    Good point...forgot about that.

    But I'd rather hold on to Granger and jettison our Coach before dealing him.

    The problem is that the Nets only have 1 big Expiring Contract to match salaries......I don't even want to mention who that 1 Big Expiring Contract is.....

    It's not like we fleeced them. We got DC from the Hornets and all New Jersey gave up in that deal was Courtney Lee. They Nets WANTED Murphy's expiring contract.
